A weekend of work!

This past weekend my parents came up to Shannon and I's new house to help paint and make the place our own. And after all that work, we're going to be really sore tomorrow!

Saturday morning we started off with a trip to Home Depot, Kelly Moore Paint, Target, and of course Starbucks. We didn't stay long though, we had to get home and get to work. My Dad and I started on fixing the front door lock while Shannon and my Mom started painting the office.

Soon after my Dad and I replaced the faucet in the kitchen sink as well, then got into painting. Altogether we were working/painting/shopping for 14 hours on Saturday and another 2 of touch-up on Sunday morning. We finished the office (light brownish beige color), the kitchen (Orange!), and the family room (light grey with a greenish tint).

I put some pictures of the finished product below, and to see a gallery of all of us working click the link below.

I want to thank my parents for the huge help this weekend. We have livable finished space in our house now, and it makes it that much more of a home. Thanks!

You weren't kidding about the orange! The place looks fab! Bravo to all the painters!

I like the color, I think it's terra cotta more than orange and I look forward to how it will look with window coverings and a light over the table.
